Configuring IPv6 in the RAX200?

o I enabled IPv6 in my RAX200.  Everything looks ok and is working fine, however I'm not sure how to manually enter the DNS servers I prefer:

 

Cloudflare:   1.1.1.1

Google:   8.8.8.8

 

 

Cloudflare lists this as their IPv6 DNS:   2606:4700:4700::1111

Google lists this as their IPv6 DNS:    2001:4860:4860::8888

 

 

 

This is the RAX200's IPv6 page.  How do I enter the above DNS addresses in there?  There are eight blanks for primary and secondary, yet the addresses Cloudflare and Google provide are four sets of four characters.

No like this:

 

Cloudflare

2606:4700:4700:0000:0000:0000:0000:1111 

2606:4700:4700:0000:0000:0000:0000:1001 (Cloudflare Alternate)


Google

2001:4860:4860:0000:0000:0000:0000:8888

2001:4860:4860:0000:0000:0000:0000:8844 (Google Alternate)

Not sure why the image isn't appearing above, but here it is again:

Just place zeroes between the second to last and last set of 4 characters the double :: means you should place 0000s in between.

Re: Configuring IPv6 in the RAX200?

So these:

 

Cloudflare lists this as their IPv6 DNS:   2606:4700:4700::1111

Google lists this as their IPv6 DNS:    2001:4860:4860::8888

 

 

should be entered like this?

Cloudflare:   2606:4700:4700:0000:1111

Google:    2001:4860:4860:0000:8888

 

 

That would still leave three blanks on each.

Ooops, Ok I got it.  They would be entered like this:

 

Cloudflare

2606:4700:4700:0000:0000:1111:0000:0000


Google

2001:4860:4860:0000:0000:8888:0000:0000

I can't login to my RAX200 now to fix the addresses.  The web browsers (Chrome and IE) just tell me that they cannot connect to the site (the RAX200's IP:  192.168.0.1).
